Covid vaccine question

I am 49, active and in good health, vaccinated and boosted, but I have not had the latest bivalent booster for Omicron due to timing of when we moved here. Despite being mostly outdoors here, I contracted COVID in December for the first time -- I think from a 10 min taxi ride. Based on the symptoms that presented, pretty sure it was Omicron.

It SUCKED. Not life threatening, but I couldn't sleep or eat for 3 days and wanted to amputate my throat. Then over a week of not being able to do anything. I didn't even want to watch TV because my energy was so low and my brain was dull.

Even though I got a boost from fighting it off, I want that bivalent booster ASAP next time I am in the US. Not even a question. No matter if the booster knocks me out for a day, it is worth reducing the risk of that experience again.
